Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Corel is to integrate GraphOn's Bridges software into its Linux distribution, giving Linux desktop clients the ability to run Windows applications remotely on NT servers running Bridges host software. The approach isn't new (it's functionally similar to Citrix's MetaFrame, and Citrix itself has a Linux client, so the uniqueness of the Corel offering is simply that the capability is being bundled as standard with the OS. This is intended to happen in Q2. Because you're going to be running the applications remotely, and indeed, because you're going to need an NT server on the network somewhere in order to do so, the Corel/Bridges agreement doesn't replace other systems for giving Linux users access to Windows applications. For example, it's perfectly possible, and likely, that clients running Bridges could also be running VMWare, or WINE, in order to be able to access Windows applications locally. And aside from competition from Citrix, GraphOn's Bridges will also be going up against SCO's Tarantella, which is coming up on the rails.
